The PlayStation 4 and Xbox One are both launching this year, and they both have a huge amount of exclusives coming. Both Sony and Microsoft are positioning their first-party exclusives strategically throughout their launch window, but third parties are also a big part of the equation. Although there are multiplatform titles coming from third parties, such as Call of Duty: Ghosts, games like Titanfall, an Xbox One exclusive, and Destiny, an FPS with PS4 exclusive content, are also big parts of the launch.
To catch up, Titanfall is exclusive to Xbox and PC systems. Plants vs. Zombies: Garden Warfare was announced with no mention of PlayStation 4. Destiny has exclusive content coming to PS4, and Sony is pushing the game hard, with the gameplay premiere of the title at the company's E3 press conference. The first two titles are published by Electronic Arts, and the final one is being distributed by Activision.
"Strategically, we are platform agnostic. Sony and Microsoft, we want them both to be successful. We want to support both of them at a strategic level equally and that’s what we’re doing. Tactically, you have opportunities sometimes that become available where you can get into a relationship and into a situation where it makes sense to do a DLC pack or a digital exclusive on a product." — Frank Gibeau, EA Labels President
